House of the Dragon Season 2 will air in 2024 on HBO. With the end of the time jumps, the continuation of the series will officially enter the Dance of the Dragons and will therefore follow the war within the Targaryens between Rhaenyra ready to take back the throne and avenge the death of her son, and Alicent ready to protect his family.
House of the Dragon season 2: the biggest flaw in the series will FINALLY be corrected and that will change everything
We don’t know the release date yet – the new episodes won’t be broadcast until 2024 on HBO (USA) and OCS (France), but we already know that House of the Dragon season 2 won’t look like the first. . The showrunner has just promised, he and his team will correct the series’ biggest flaw for the sequel in order to please fans and make the story smoother.
The ending of Game of Thrones still continues to haunt fans , three years after it aired – even Maisie Williams (Arya) has just admitted that it was botched, but HBO has managed the feat of reviving the hype around the Game of Thrones. universe imagined by George RR Martin thanks to House of the Dragon .
This spin-off set a hundred years before the events of the Iron Throne and centered on the bloody internal war within the Targaryens has indeed reconciled everyone by offering us episodes as great as they are enjoyable, marked by the best qualities from GoT . Like what, miracles do exist.
Too many time jumps in season 1
However, be careful, don’t believe that this season 1 – which ended last weekend in the USA and on OCS in France – was flawless. Between its ridiculous dumplings during filming or certain indefensible creative choices (poke the use of the concept of American night in an abused way ), House of the Dragon sometimes gave us a few reasons to complain. And among them, how not to mention time jumps?
Indeed, in just 10 episodes, the creators have not stopped evolving the timeline, whether with changes of actors or simple makeup effects. Consequences ? This not only made following the story more complex (you always had to remember who was who and accept the inconsistencies with the differences in physical treatment next to each other), but also slowed down our attachment to the characters and the issues since these were constantly evolving.
The creators of House of the Dragon won’t make the same mistake again
A frustrating situation that thankfully won’t happen again in season 2.” What I can say is that to reward this incredible audience that has followed us to the end with all these time jumps and story changes. ‘actors, all this is now over “, has just promised Ryan Condal (showrunner) to Deadline.
He has indeed clarified, where George RR Martin imagines another 4 seasons to tell the story of his book Fire and Blood , this sequel will finally be linear: ” We will now tell the story in real time “. And inevitably, for this purpose, the current actors are officially guaranteed to be all back: “ These actors will play these characters until the end. “. After what served as a prologue, House of the Dragon is now ready to tell the story we were all waiting for: “ We are now in the middle of the Dance of the Dragons and we are therefore going to tell all that ”.
A necessarily reassuring and encouraging statement that would almost make us forget a terrible thing: we will have to wait until 2024 to follow season 2.
